  1. great list Dustin, I havent seen much pre-1980 and this puts my lists to shame. Now I am seriously going to hunt for some of those that I have not seen.

  4. I noticed you have two films on your list starring Richard Widmark, Night and The City and Pick Up on South Street. The former is one of my favorite examples of noir fatalism. I almost weep at the end when the near hysterical Harry Fabian finally managed to pull off a get-rich-quick scheme.
